If you are an enthusiastic sportsman and you do not want to get lazy during your Erasmus, you have the possibility to use university sport facilities. There are nice reconstructed gyms, swimming pool and fully equipped fitness gyms right opposite your dormitory at Tajovskeho 40, in the Department of Physical education and sport. You have the option to buy a “Sport card” for 25€ per semester (40€ per year), which will allow you the access to these facilities and attend swimming, fitness, aerobics, zumba, gymnastics, football and volleyball. You can manage your activities according to your free time and university schedule and you can combine them according to your interests. You will have to have at least 12 participations or “uses” of this card. This card can be obtained at the Department of Physical education and sport at the beginning of each academic semester under the programme called “Šport pre všetkých” (Sports for all) http://www.ff.umb.sk/katedry/katedra-telesnej-vychovy-a-sportu/sport-pre....

If you do not want to buy this card, there is another option of signing up for a university subject called “Physical education” and under this subject, you can attend classes of fitness, aerobic, tennis, volleyball, swimming, football, floorball, mountaineering, hiking in the mountains of Slovakia and around Banská Bystrica and many other, though places are rather limited. You will also for sure be able to attend many sport events and games that we prepare for you at the ESN, such as wall climbing, table tennis tournaments, or even paintball matches. In any case, you can always ask your buddy about sport facilities in the whole city as there are various fitness gyms, city swimming pool, ice hockey stadium, tennis courts and many more.
